If I were a root-dwelling meat-eating monster who lived in a pastoral setting, there's no way I wouldn't send out a white rabbit wearing a vest and carrying a clock to lure tiny locals into my mysterious pit-like mouth.
@signalstation a monster that only consumes animals larger than a small child

child shrugs and runs away
Ha! There's even a rabbit! That's fantastic.
@signalstation the evolutionary selective pressures are just to great for it *not* to do that
@signalstation you’d probably secrete hallucinogens to keep the prey from fighting out too.
That makes a LOT of sense.
